Confession – I love to decorate with plates. When I was in college my then boyfriend, Michael, was so confused by it – he had never seen it before. Growing up in my house plates on the wall as well as on the table was very common. The women in my mom’s side of the family love to use plates in home decor – it’s a very southern thing to do. Here’s a couple pics of my plates around the apartment.
I’ve gotten all of these at Anthropologie, but a couple other places to look would be Urban Outfitters, World Market or an antique shop. My owl and giraffe plate are actually still available here.
Here are a couple more I’m loving.
Finally I’ll leave you with a little Pinspiration.
